MV Big Flea

The MV Big Flea is hosting a mini Flea pop-up yard sale TOMORROW (9/20) from 8:00 AM-12:00 PM at 114 Hume Avenue in Del Ray (between Mt. Vernon and Dewitt). Swing by to get great deals on Flea housewares, glassware, art, toys, and furniture and much, much more. Don’t need any more stuff? Come by anyway to say hi and pick up some sweet treats! The little Fleas will be hosting a bake sale to raise additional funds.

All proceeds from the pop-up yard sale and bake sale benefit the Mount Vernon Community School.

Tomorrow is sale-only Flea event (no drop offs, as our temp storage is filled to the gills!), but save your treasures just a few more weeks and we’ll be able to take them when we get the keys to our spacious new storage unit in October! In the meantime, if you have a sudden case of clutter-itis or junque-phobia, you can contact your friendly Flea operators at mvbigfleadonations@gmail.com for help.

Don’t forget to follow the MV Big Flea on Facebook to get sneak peeks of tomorrow’s sale, and to see what’s new in our virtual showroom (hint: there’s a lot!). New merchandise is being added daily.
